My CO2 Freshwater Planted Aquarium

Hi there, have just joined- i was invited to this forum after someone saw a picture of my tank on myspace, so i thought what better way to make your first post than to submit the picture that brought me to this forum.

I havent been keeping up with water changes this last month, and its just had a trim, it will be looking alot better at the end of the month, hope you like it, well here it is.

Hello and welcome aboard, Andrew.

I was thinking about Takashi Amano, Andrew. Your tank beats some of Amano's any day.

You'll have a great load of beauty added if discus are in it. And then some rummy-nose tetras and diamond tetras.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

its not that big 180 litres, i havae kept discus before but they are too much hassle and feeding bloodowrm every day is large load for a planted aquarium.
here is a pic of how the tank used to look.

i am not a fan of rummies, i am when i am ready going to put in 50 cardinals- all lil babies and grow them on to a might impressiive shoal.
I have kept so many species of fish, you cant help but marvel at a healthy shoal of deep red cardinals in a deep green tank- once the tank is emerald green in go the fish lol :) hopefully christmas time.
